A marinade guaranteed to make your chicken breasts tender and juicy, this one has a little bit of everything... in just the right proportions.
Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps
Jalapenos are stuffed with cream cheese, wrapped with bacon, and barbequed on the grill.
Marinated Barbequed Vegetables
The garlic, lemon and basil marinade infuses veggies with an unmistakably delicious flavor. These veggies go great with just about anything!
Bellyful of Barbecued Bananas
Bananas rolled in brown sugar and cinnamon are grilled until caramelized and served with vanilla ice cream. You can also cook them in a skillet with melted butter.
Shredded Beef Chimichangas
Usually deep fried, chimichangas can also be oven-fried with less mess, fuss, and fat. Use the filling in burritos as well. You may also deep fry, if desired.
Mexican Rice II
Rice is sauteed with salt, cumin and onion, then simmered with tomato sauce and chicken broth.
Pico De Gallo
An authentic Mexican salsa made with tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos. Serve with tacos, nachos, black beans, refried beans, or your favorite Mexican dish!
Who would believe that beer would be the perfect solution to eradicating fluorescent green margaritas? Well, it is! Best to use not-so-micro brews to avoid an overpowering flavor. Use the limeade can to measure the ingredients, and adjust with extra water if the mixture seems too sweet. Straining the pulp is always a good idea, unless, of course, you like pulp!
Sage Pork Chops
Pork chops rubbed with a pungent seasoning of dried sage, salt and pepper are pan fried in butter until golden brown then simmered in a simple beef bouillon.
Wilted Cabbage Salad with Bacon
Bacon is the star. It's browned and crumbled and all the other ingredients are lightly sauteed in the bacon drippings --onion, garlic, vinegar, and shredded cabbage. Serve warm.
Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli
Broccoli florets are roasted after being tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and minced garlic. A squeeze of lemon juice before serving seals the deal.
Delightful salmon and feta cheese filling wrapped in puff pastry. I have substituted spinach and cooked tiny shrimp for salmon in this recipe too.
Easy Mini Quiches
Cute quiches that are as tasty as they look. Perfect finger food for parties, these one-bite wonders will make any party into an event.
Deviled eggs made with spicy hot mustard have a sweet and hot kick. A cut stuffed olive on top adds to the presentation.
Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties
This simple but tasty appetizer takes its cue from English tea sandwiches -this time, atop crusty baguette slices with a creamy spread.
